How to get into a Residential Care Facility

Moving into an aged care home may often be a difficult and emotional decision.

Request Info Pack
Visit Our Facilities

To apply for a place in one of our facilities you need the following:

  • The ACCR from your ACAT assessment
  • Application form
  • Assets and Income assessment (recommended)

The assets and income assessment is undertaken by the Australian Government.

Whilst not compulsory, it is recommended that you complete an assets and income assessment to determine if you are eligible for any assistance from the Australian Government towards your accommodation payments.

To obtain an assets and income assessment, you need to submit a ‘Request for a Combined Assets and Income Assessment’ form to either Centrelink, or the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) if you are a war veteran or widow/er. You can download a Permanent Residential Aged Care Request for a Combined Assets and Income Assessment form from the www.humanservices.gov.au website or you can call our Customer Centre and we will send you one.

If you have applied for an assets and income assessment and haven’t received it before you apply to Baptistcare, just send your assessment when you receive it.

If a room is not available at the time you apply, you will be placed on a waiting list. Our Customer Centre can give you more information about waiting lists.

You can apply to more than one facility in your application.

Once a place is available, we will send you an acceptance pack to help you and us prepare for your arrival.
